Vandana – Need Further Investigation

Twenty-four years young lady is suffering from Rheumatic Heart Disease. She underwent Balloon Mitral on 9th August 2012 at GB Pant Hospital, Delhi.

She got married in 2014. Since last 5-6 months she is complaining chest pain, fainting spells and breathlessness on exertion. She again went to see the doctor in GB Pant Hospital where she was investigated and advised to undergo resurgery.

Since balloon was not available in GB Pant Hospital she had to wait. Her husband is a salesman in a mall. He cannot afford costly surgery in a private hospital.

The family approached Padma Shri, Dr B C Roy National and DST National Science Communication Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal at Sameer Malik Heart Care Foundation Fund which is an initiative of Heart Care Foundation of India, for assistance.

Repeat echo was done at the Fund which revealed mild MR, thickened mitral valve, mitral valve peak gradient of 15 and mean gradient of mitral valve area was 1.2 cm2. So she was advised conservative management and repeated and repeated checkup to assess mitral valve area.
